Re: Heroes: Here thar be spoilers (Merg'd Season 2)

Bleh. The bloom is off the rose. This episode was really crap. Maybe the storylines are too discrete? It's tough to care about any of it when it jumps around so much. When they focus on a single storyline, they do the best, I think. It makes the writers actually have to work at making the characters...

I think most of the reasons we see future Heroes as villains is because we see their actions out of context. We know that Peter is good, and thus them killing him makes them bad. However, we missed four years in there and it seems Peter redefined himself in that time. Peter is rash, impetuous, and s...
